South Africa beat India by 7 wickets
Right then. That’s it from the coverage of this game and the Test series as well. But the visitors will not fly back home yet as India and South Africa will battle against each other in a three-match ODI series. The first ODI is scheduled to be played on 19th January, 2022 at 1400 IST (0830 GMT). But as you all know you can join us early for the build-up. Till then, goodbye and take care!
Keegan Petersen is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH and the PLAYER OF THE SERIES. He says that it will take a couple of hours to sink in, but he is feeling happy and emotional. Adds that he took every little positive from each innings he played. It has been a tough journey for him, it has been difficult in different conditions. He says that, It's not been easy coming to Test cricket, there have been challenging wickets to play on, so it has been tough. Mentions that they knew it was always going to be difficult against top bowling attack, but they had a tough mindset. Concludes by saying that he has enjoyed every bit of his innings.
Dean Elgar, the victorious skipper, is in for a chat. He says that they are pretty elated. Mentions that he couldn't be more proud of the group and the guys have responded exceedingly well after the first loss. Tells that one needs to show immense character in these kind of conditions and 60 wickets in three Tests is a tough challenge for the bowlers but they bowled really well and it was unreal to see some performances. Says that he is extremely proud of the team. Adds that it helps to have a group that really doesn't have any big names, the guys just played well and played as a team. Mentions that he laid a few challenges, even to some senior players but it was great to see them take the message and be on board. Says that they have played as a unit and they have grown massively as a group in the last two Tests. States that if one needs to be No.1 someday in Test cricket, one needs to beat the best in the world. Says he is really happy with how things panned out in the end. Also says that they are by no means like a finished article and he is already focusing on the next series. Informs that there are still a few negatives that they need to work on. On Keegan Petersen, he says that he responded really well after the first Test and has shown great character. Also says that he has been brilliant in the domestic circuit for a while now and it's great to see him do so well in these last two Tests. Ends by saying that he's willing to learn more and more and a team needs a player like that who shows great character.
Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, is in for a chat. He says, that he thinks it's a great spectacle of Test cricket for everyone. It was a hard-fought series. But South Africa have done well. They were able to capitalize on important hours and were absolutely the deserving winners at the end. Adds that one of the challenges faced during tours are to capitalize on momentum when it is on their side. Whenever they have done that, they have won games. But when they haven't done so, they have lost matches. Mentions that batting was the issue for their side, and South Africans have done well with the ball in these conditions, and yes, batting collapse is an issue and they will work upon that. On being asked what were the things he was happy about, he says that KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal batted well, Pant's century was special and the win at centurion was special too.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
But once again, Jansen and Rabada ran riot with the ball and sent back the opening pair cheaply at the end of Day 2. India would've loved to put up a target of 300 runs, but on the moving day, India lost two wickets within the opening 10 minutes of the morning session, in the form of Pujara and Rahane. It was Pant who played an aggressive innings but not relentless to notch-up his first Test ton against South Africa and set up a target just over 200 runs. India though managed to get a couple of wickets in the final session of Day 3. There were some decisions that the Indians were not happy with and due to lapse of concentration at certain phases might've costed them this series.
Earlier in the game, a vital contribution with the blade by Kohli and Pujara made sure India get 223 runs on the board in the first innings. As South African pacers were on the money and Rabada led the attack with his four-fer. It was the same story for the hosts when they came out to bat, as Keegan Petersen showed composure in the middle and made sure to help his side to get to 210 runs before India bundled them out and had a small lead in hand coming into the third innings.
Best teams fight till the very end, they say. But the body language of India was really low after they came out to field post the Lunch break. Also, surprisingly Kohli went with a combination of Ashwin and Yadav, and South African batters made sure to waste no time and took full advantage of it. Indians started the morning session really well. Their bowlers asked a lot of questions but the batters, had a rub of green, and India could only take a single wicket in the morning session through Lord Shardul Thakur. This wicket gave the visitors a glimmer of hope but South Africa were up to the task and took the game away from India comfortably.
What a revelation Keegan Petersen has been for South Africa. He has been exceptional in this series and that too against a strong bowling attack. In the morning session, Petersen came out with Rassie van der Dussen and saw off the first hour of the session quite comfortably and racked up good amount of runs after Petersen was dropped by Pujara in the slips. But Petersen yet again missed out on his Test century and holed out at 82. Later, Bavuma came to the crease and batted with great composure along with Rassie van der Dussen and remained unscathed till Lunch. After the break, South Africa wasted no time and scored runs at a brisk rate and chased the target within 45 minutes to seal the series.
South Africa take a 2-1 lead and win this Test series. What a turnaround this has been for the Proteas. Winning two back-to-back games to make the series theirs, who would've thought? The South African dressing room are up and celebrating. This Test had everything, drama, emotions, comebacks. Both the teams gave their all but, in the end, the hosts maintain their domination at home and India would be disappointed as they were not able to snatch the series even after winning the first Test match. Let's not forget about the World Test Championship point table. South Africa take the fourth spot after this victory and India slip down a spot and are now 5th on the point table.

We are back for the second session of Day 4! Indian players stride out to the middle. Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen will resume their batting. Ravichandran Ashwin will start with the ball. Here we go...
... Day 4, Session 2 ...
India, on the other hand, have been very disciplined with their bowling. They troubled the South African batters a lot, but could not manage to get an early breakthrough. A dropped catch, reviews going against them, nothing went India's way. Shardul Thakur, did come back and grab the big wicket of Petersen and put some pressure on South Africa. But, have not managed to take another wicket. A tough session for India, but they can look to turn things around after the break. But it won't be an easy task. Will India be able to make history? Or will South Africa continue their domination on home turf? To find out, do join us at 1640 IST (1110 GMT) to see what is coming our way in the second session, which should be the final session of this Test match.
South Africa started off the session brilliantly. Keegan Petersen, once again displayed his class and kept the scoreboard ticking. Rassie van der Dussen too did well and was playing a responsible innings. Although the Indian bowlers did trouble them initially, but the duo did well not to get an outside edge on any of the deliveries. Petersen though got a reprieve off the dropped catch by Pujara at slips and since then, Petersen collected runs watchfully. But he could not get his first Test century and slipped out on 82. Later, Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen did well to remain unscathed till the end of the first session.
An intense session of Test cricket! South Africa on top here after the morning session. Although it seems easy for South Africa, Indian bowlers are making them fight for each run. In the first hour of the session, the hosts were running away but India came back stronger, and picked up the wicket of the big fish, Keegan Petersen. Since then, it has been a challenge for South Africa to score runs. The hosts still need 41 runs, while India need 7 wickets.

Ball Tracking shows that the ball is pitching outside off, the impact was in line and it is umpire's call on wickets hitting. When it's not your day, it's not your day. India retain their review but that will certainly not help their cause. Rassie van der Dussen survives.

Cheteshwar Pujara will be gutted with himself after dropping a sitter, it could prove to be a costly one. Still, a few quick wickets in the next hour, India could be back in the game, but still a touch task from here on for the visitors. Also, Mohammed Shami (11-1-34-1) is back into the attack.

Review! India have reviewed a caught behind decision. The replay rolls in. UltraEdge indicates no bat involved but shows a spike as the batsman had hit the bat on the ground. A tough decision, but the on-field call stands and India lose a review. Virat Kohli is not happy, this was really close. There was a second spike on the replay which the TV umpire concludes to be off the ground as well and not the blade. But the Indian players think otherwise. Another controversy regarding a review in this Test match. There is so much at stake here, the players are not shy of showing their emotions here.

There is an appeal from the keeper and the slip cordon but nothing from Shami. India still opt for the review. Virat Kohli goes for it with just one second left on the timer. UltraEdge shows a spike but it was of the bat hitting the ground. The original decision stays and India lose their review.

Swing starightaway! Jasprit Bumrah serves a length ball, shaping away from outside off. Rassie van der Dussen looks to play but decides against it at the end.
The first session is set to begin. Indian players stride out to the middle. Followed by Keegan Petersen and Rassie van der Dussen, the new man in at number 4, who walk out to bat for the Proteas. Jasprit Bumrah to complete his over. Here we go...
PITCH REPORT - Sunil Gavaskar is near the deck. He says, the pitch has got down a little bit. There is a spot near the 8m mark, but when the ball comes around the 6m area, there is something on offer for the bowlers. It should be an interesting day of cricket.
South Africa on the other hand, were sensational and ruled Day 3. First, their pacers produced a lethal spell and bundled out India for 198. It was Lungi Ngidi who worked his magic in the second session and bagged three wickets. Jansen was the pick of the bowler with four wickets, while Rabada took 3 scalps. Chasing 212 , the hosts lost Aiden Markam for just 16 while Dean Elgar departed at the stroke of Stumps. With Keegan Petersen unbeaten on 48 and with 8 wickets in hand, the home side will fancy their chances for the win which will also seal the series for them. But a couple of early wickets in today's first session and things could turn around pretty quickly, you never know. An enthralling day of Test cricket awaits.
The moving day for India didn't turn out to be a great one as India were bowled out for 198, but the day turned out to be a great one for Rishabh Pant as out of those 198, 100 were scored by him. He became the first Asian wicketkeeper to notch up a ton on the South African soil and thanks to his ton, India set up a target of 212 runs. Once again, it was Shami and Bumrah who struck in the final session on Day 3 and the Indians would know that a wicket or two can change the trajectory of the game.
Hello and a warm welcome to Day 4 and what should be the final day of the third and the last Test between India and South Africa. The equation is pretty simple for both teams. South Africa need 111 runs while India need 8 wickets to win their first Test series in South Africa. Let's see how the day pans out and which team wins the series.
... Day 4, Session 1 ...
We cannot emphasize the importance of the first session on Day 4. Whichever team comes out on top before Lunch on Day 4 will have a big advantage. If India can get another couple of quick wickets, they will sense their first-ever Test series win in South Africa. But, if the next pair for South Africa can put up a 50-plus stand then the hosts will have a big advantage in the chase. It has been a Test in which not a single moment has been dull and Day 4 promises to be no different. Do join us for the same at 1400 IST (0830 GMT) for the first ball and also for the buildup which begins earlier. Till then, take care and goodbye!
We have witnessed so many comebacks in this Test match by both the sides and right at the stroke of Stumps, Bumrah puts his hand up and gets his side back in the equation after a prized scalp of Elgar. India started brilliantly and it was Shami who drew the first blood. India were not happy after a lbw decision went against them, after South Africa took the review and must have lost some concentration post that, which led to leaking a few extra runs and India won't be happy about it. India need more 8 wickets to mark a historic win in South Africa. Also, lets keep in mind, only thrice a team has chased down a target above 200 runs in Cape Town.
A really good session for the hosts until the wicket of their skipper. South Africa came out to bat with the right intention to chase down a target of 212 runs. Markram was the aggressor while Elgar was being watchful initially. Although, Markram went chasing for a few deliveries outside off and it costed him his wicket. Petersen joined Elgar in the middle, the runs came in at a slow rate initially. But Elgar made sure to make the most of his reprieve and both the batters scored runs at a brisk rate and 100 was up for the hosts in no time. But in the end, Elgar lost his wicket at the stroke of Stumps and that would hurt South Africa a lot.
What a day! What a day of Test cricket! Things are still neck and neck between these two sides and one hour of a dominant display by either side could put them well on top. The game has been dominated by pacers and Day 3 was no different. 10 wickets fell and we have a cracking finish coming up in the next two days.
Review! India have reviewed a caught behind decision. The replay rolls in. UltraEdge confirms there was bat involved in that. The decision needs to be overturned. A successful review for India! Dean Elgar walks back to the hut.

Kohli is certain Elgar has got some bat on it and takes the review. Big spike of UltraEdge and Elgar has to walk back. Also, THAT WILL BE STUMPS ON DAY 3.

DRINKS! Although India have got a wicket under their sleeve. A solid stand is building for the hosts. Proteas need more 165 runs to win. They would hope the current pair to remain wicketless until the Stumps. India need to make a statement with the ball and not let the hosts run away with the game. They would hope to make quick inroads in the game.
